Existing registered athletes who have not renewed their subs are not considered members of the club and will not qualify for the above benefits.
Our subs are extremely good value compared to athletics clubs across the country of similar size.
We are only able to keep our subs so low because of the success of our club races, so we really need all our members to support those races either by entering and running, or helping to organise and marshal.
1 The UKA fee is increasing to £15 from 1st April 2018.
2 Individual UKA / England Athletics license required.
